Sunday January 1 2017 – The active weather pattern continues this first week of the new year. But as climatology would have it, colder air will be progressing in during the week.
Update- Freezing Rain Advisory expanded into northern Maryland
The first event will bring mostly rain, but there is a small chance of minor icing Monday morning north and west of Baltimore inland from the Bay. A Freezing Rain Advisory is in place (see my prior post). Not all models agree, as the HRRR radar simulation below shows all rain, even on the north end as it arrives between 2 and 4 AM. Rain will be with us most of the day, then a break Monday night, then another round of rain Tuesday.
When this storm moves out, it will help push the jet stream farther south. The fast moving systems to follow will bring a chance for light snow Thursday evening into Friday. The weekend event is still in question as the energy may move farther off of the coast. I discussed the model error tendency for long range winter systems yesterday. FITF
Here’s a quick look at what we will be following…..

There may be a break around Baltimore, but rain should remain steady near Annapolis to the Eastern Shore all day.
